Three foreigners were shot dead during an exchange of fire with the police

 Three foreigners belonging to a bandit gang, broke into a house and were shot dead during an exchange of fire with the police in Selayang Jaya, here, early this morning.

 According to the Police, two of the suspects have United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) cards. It was found in the investigation that all three men were rohingya.

 One of the suspects has 12 previous criminal records and was jailed in 2016 and 2017 for burglary.

Dead bodies were over to the concern department for further investigation and despatch to their home country.

 Selangor Police Chief, Datuk Hussein Omar Khan said, in the incident at 12.30 midnight, the three suspects acted aggressively when arrested by police officers who were on patrol.

 According to him, the patrol members had to fire seven shots after the suspect fired several shots at the police but only hit the patrol vehicle.

 “After shooting, the patrol found three men covered in blood and dead and found two revolver-type pistols in the vehicle involved.

 “Two of the suspects have United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) cards while the main mastermind does not have any identification,” he said at a press conference at the Gombak District Police Headquarters (IPD), here, today.

 Hussein said that his party believed to have successfully solved at least 50 cases of housebreaking and robbery throughout this year in six states involving the group known as the Fiesta Region Gang.

 He said the police believed the group was involved in at least 27 cases of housebreaking and robbery in Selangor this year involving a loss of RM1.3 million.

 “The main suspect has 12 criminal records and was arrested in 2016 for burglary and was released in 2017 and upgraded to armed robbery.

 “The group is believed to operate with three to four members and the party is tracking the remaining suspects if there are any. The latest case in Batang Kali, Hulu Selangor involved the loss of three Rolex watch threads and two Hublot watch threads worth RM445,000 last December 8,” he said.

 According to him, the three suspects in their 30s targeted unoccupied homes before breaking in to steal valuables such as luxury watches.

 Hussein said further investigations are still being conducted to identify how the group sold the proceeds of the robbery in order to trace the items that had been stolen before.

 “We succeeded in defeating the Rohingya bandits believed to be active in six states, namely Selangor, Kuala Lumpur, Pahang, Melaka, Negeri Sembilan, and Penang.

 “This group is indeed wanted by the police and when we come across the police, we believe they are planning to commit a robbery based on the equipment found,” he said.

 Hussein said that the three suspects involved are believed to live around Batu Caves and Selayang, where they are active in criminal activities, especially in the Hulu Selangor area.

 He said, the police are completing the investigation according to Section 307 of the Criminal Code to identify the real modus operandi and trace the remains of the suspects involved.

 Earlier Harian Metro reported that the police shot dead three criminals believed to be foreigners in Selayang, here, early this morning.

 Acting Gombak District Police Chief Superintendent Ariffin Mohamad Nasir when contacted confirmed the incident.
